Website under siege…

I run a small website on the internet to promote my writing and share free stories. In the past 2 weeks I have seen a significant increase in hacking attempts by criminals trying to take control of the site. They are seeking admin passwords, worpdress passwords, passing carefully constructed PHP strings, attempting to download vulnerable Photoshop extensions, and on and on and on. The hack attempts are mostly coming from servers in Ukraine, Russia, Seychelles, Germany and The Netherlands – its’ a good reminder about the need to keep your passwords secure, to avoid sharing them between platforms, and be careful about the sites you visit on the internet… criminals seem to be everywhere now.
